Welcome back to the final term of Year 1!
We have been doing lots of hard work in the Hedgehogs this week. In Maths, we have been learning about fractions this week. We have learnt what a quarter and a half is of some shapes. We have even halved and quartered biscuits to prove that some shapes cannot be halved or quartered. We have then applied this learning to find a quarter or a half of amounts. Next week, we will be starting a new unit on position and direction.
In English, we have continued our work on recounts. We have innovated the recount of the Sea life trip and talked about good features of a recount. Next week, we will be planning and writing our own recounts for one of our favourite holidays!
In Topic this week, we have learnt all about Christopher Columbus. We have learnt about how Columbus ended up exploring the Americas, and about his life. Next week, we will be looking at boats and shipwrecks!
The Hedgehogs have all worked really hard this week. 6 more weeks until we finish!
